In 2008, Rick and Sue Clark founded the Worldteam Foundation, an organization that fights human trafficking. They began with a particular emphasis on the needs of Thailand.

Rick and Sue have been married 44 years. They have three children who love and serve the Lord and nine grandchildren. Rick, once a hippie philosophy student, came to know Christ on November 7, 1971. He immediately gave himself to evangelism and in 1976 graduated from Philadelphia College of Bible. After pastoring and growing Oreland Baptist Church in Pennsylvania from 1976-1981, Rick and his wife Sue began 9 years with Pioneers Mission. Rick spent the first two years recruiting and training new missionaries in his role as the Candidate and Deputation Secretary. 9 months after earning his Masters in Missions from the Columbia Graduate School in Columbia, South Carolina in June of 1984, he became Pioneer’s first missionary to Bangkok, Thailand. Rick and Sue landed in Bangkok on June 14, 1985 (their 15th wedding anniversary) with their two daughters, Stephanie and Jessica. Jeremiah was born in Bangkok on May 12, 1986. While in Thailand, Rick continued his studies in Church Growth under the Asia Pacific University. The Clark’s witnessed the miraculous hand of God repeatedly in Thailand, and their vision for reaching entire cities led them, upon finishing their four year term in Bangkok, to study further at the Fuller School of Mission, beginning in 1990. Trips to Argentina with Peter Wagner and Ed Silvoso stirred the vision for the formation of a missionary fellowship, TEAM International, which was launched in August 1994.
